Are you planning on running just two subs? Did you wire for atmos at all?

Wall treatments

Burning some midnight oil trying to take advantage of the long weekend and wrap this thing up!. Not quite sure if I hung the Ultra Touch correctly but it is staying on the wall so far. My concern is that it will protrude the fabric on the panel frame but I can always put more screws in to tie down the high spots. The plan is to build the frame .25" or so deeper than the treatment so we will see. I used a 3' wood screw with the I plastic washers off of the roofing nails I had.
Left wall

Right Wall

Rear panel treatments, opposite wall is the same

And from the front (excuse the mess, please)

Looking like I will need to secure the Ultra Touch a little more on the bottom, it really hangs out there.

For now, yes. I was wondering since I have a lack of space in the rear if I could use a couple in wall subs and hide them in the rear columns. I guess that would be a question for the calibrator.


I did not wire for atmos but I think I could if I decide to go that route. I can access the ceiling from the hall and fish my wires down between the channeling holding up the ceiling. Probable easier said than done but doable.

That ultratouch stuff is nice but it is extremely dusty. I didn't know if you planned on putting a sub in each rear corner. From the pics it almost looks like you have room. I put one on my platform an I like the tactile feel plus it helped smooth out my room response. Hopefully you won't have any problems with you projector vibrating like I did. It ended up taking me quite a while to eliminate it.

thanks - i figured the stone would just adhere to the wall - i am liking the idea here!

You know, I did not even think about that. That could be an issue. the projector pole is 24", a large distance for something like that to happen. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Of all the reading I have done on this site, I can't say I remember read anything about that type of problem.(if you did, obviously I haven't read your thread) I am surprised that you don't hear more about that problem.

I did...you can't go wrong with Nyal or Jeff. I love my theater more and more every time I watch something. On the Ultratouch, just need to fasten the bottom of it as well and you'll be set. I was fortunate enough that I could just tuck it into the wainscot.

I never would have thought of that color for a home theater, but with the stone up it looks outstanding!

Really looking awesome.

Thanks man. I think the brown is dark enough that I am hope that there will be no reflection of the front of the soffit. The good thing, it is only a paint roller away from fixing that if it does.

Carpet

The carpet installers are here, that means more progress and that's a good thing.

The red padding is from the previous room. It was in the front of the room and had little to no foot traffic so we saved it when we tore the carpet up. I

Carpet is in. I think it turned out great. It really complements the stone. 1 installer, 6 hrs and he worked his tale off.

So we moved on to installing the subs and speakers, I almost feel bad putting the 1099's behind the screen and covering them up.


and then the screen ~ Falcon Screen ~

While the carpet was going in I fabed a header piece for the door. I used 3/4" MDF for the face & some poplar board for the top & bottom cap with a little cove. Hard to see the cove in this shot because of the shadow.

Hung the projector with the UH480 lens mount/slide on Saturday morning with the assistance of @TMcG, we needed to take a quick trip to Lowes to pick up 6- 10/24 x 3/4 bolts to mount the projector to the mounting plate. The bolts were not in packaging.


Also installed all the foot lighting over the weekend

and started to arrange the equipment in the rack while starting to bring the basement back from the war zone. Things are shaping up.

So r those getting wrapped then? They look pretty cool in the pics but I'm on my phone so I can't really see em well. How think r they. They look really thick. Again on my phone. Lol

I'm going to to end up doing like you and leaving painted wall around the panels and columns. I've been liking this look more over the past year.

Who did ur acoustic plan again?

They are shy of 3.5" thick. I am going to wrap them acoustical fabric. Nyal Mellor with Acoustic Frontiers designed the treatments

From the reviews that I have saw he does great work. I was actually thinking about having him do my projector an surround system in March. So I am curious to hear what you think when he does yours.

I am following the lead of dlbeck and the reviews people have posted on his Savoy thread. I will definitely post what Jeff has to say and mine after comments.

I had a really hard time trying to choose a carpet to "go with" the stone, ESPECIALLY when the stone is right on the carpet (no baseboard).

Your carpet selection goes PERFECTLY with the stone you have! They look awesome together! Great choice.

Thank you.That was the one thing I was concerned about as well. I am truly amazed how well the transition from stone to carpet is. I really could not ask for it to be any better.

Screen Panels

we were able to cover 3 of the 4 screen panels tonight. It started out a little slow but we recovered nicely.


The velvet is from Sy fabric, there is a slight difference in finishes between the screen frame velvet and the panel velvet but it doesn't seem to be as noticeable in person as it is in the picture.

Sorry! I meant the LED rope lighting, the LED's above your screen look good to. While thinking about it, with your acoustic treatments you have space on the walls were there are no treatments. What do you put there when covering the treatments? Do you leave it empty or does something go there to fill space? I am going to have the same thing in my theater but was not sure best practice when it comes to areas behind fabric that do not have any treatment.

I am going to build an open box and cover it with fabric and the trim it out with some small crown. So I will have a little open space around the treatments, roughly 4"
